2015 Mercedes-AMG S63 Gets the Vilner Treatment

S-Class is now fit for a king

If you want to make your hot wheels hotter, you need to take your ride to the gang at Vilner. Since 1996, the Bulgarian custom shop/art studio has been crafting dream machines for fastidious owners around the world.

Case in point, the company's latest project: formerly just another stock 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG.

The owner of the top-shelf, $160,000-plus S-Class wanted something more than the paltry Designo interior options offered by Mercedes, so he turned to the experts at Vilner for help.

The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, received the full treatment and the car's interior received a complete makeover. Vilner refers to him as "The King."

It seems His Highness wanted more Maybach and less Mercedes for the look and feel of his 585-horsepower black beauty.

Now, the royal driver and his subjects are smothered in a cocoon of jet black Alcantara and quilted leather with white stitching. Vilner's stitching weaves a fine, silky web throughout the entire cabin including the swanky S63's floor mats and even inside the transformed trunk.

It looks so good, we'd never let anyone eat, smoke, or even wear shoes while riding in it — ever. The steering wheel, rearview mirror, and basically anything you might touch are wrapped in Alcantara. No bare plastic bits have been left behind here. Also, all the wood trim is now finished in Piano Gloss Black.

"The result is a black kingdom of luxury, in the exact state that 'The King' wanted to be," Vilner informs us on its website.

It's good to be the king.

In 2011, Subaru brought back the STI sedan after what felt like they’d been testing the waters with their five-door hatchback. Many enthusiasts believed the hatch to be “less STI”, so the Subie faithful were delighted once the news of a lower, wider and meaner sedan would be returning. Sexy features like a quad exhaust,

Aside from what most automotive journalists think, the DMC-12 DeLorean was one of the dopest cars ever made. Of course, that isn’t due to its 130hp fuel injected V6 engine or suspect build quality, but for its iconic role in the Back to the Future Trilogy and also for its unforgettable, boxy design, brushed stainless

It wasn’t the all-too-familiar Initial D series, nor was it the almost natural association with drifting that pulled Lester Donis’s attention to his two-toned 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS. It also wasn’t a feature story or any sort of social media influence that nudged him toward the iconic hatchback. Interestingly enough, his childhood encounter with a
